A man robbed a 7-Eleven early Sunday morning after holding three people at gunpoint inside the store.
At 1:57 a.m. Sunday, a black male carrying a green and black duffle bag and armed with a black revolver entered the 7-Eleven at the 4200 block of State Road 64 E. and pointed his gun at two clerks.
He then pointed the gun at an 18-year-old customer.
He ordered the three people to lay on the ground.
When they complied, the man ordered one of the clerks to open the cash register and put cash in the bag.
The man then demanded packages of cigarettes and cigars.
Once the bag was filled, the man fled eastbound on foot.
There were no injuries to report.
The black male is described as being skinny and wearing a white long sleeve shirt, gloves and a black shirt wrapped around his face at the time of the theft.
